My Art and Spirituallity
I have been painting for over 30 years with about a 20yr hiatus until 5 years ago when I retired from one of the big 3 in Detroit (PhD Mechanical Engineering). I restarted my painting pursuit and have participated in numerous galleries and shows, selling a number of my pieces.

About the same time, I lost all spirituallity. I have never considered myself a "religious" person, but I have always been "spiritual" and believing in a "higher Power". That has truely gone by the wayside. Why? I don't know. I no longer "believe". When my life is over, IT'S OVER! My only legacy is my art and 6 kids (that I know of!)
I don't know what happened or why. If there are any ammature (or professional)Psychotherepists out there have any comments or suggestions, even to my art, I would welcome them.

The peace and tranquility captured in your pieces all seem to be reflections of the higher Power who produces in and through you what He has to offer. This shift from the internal to the external and more visible spiritual expression is the hope that says that all has not been lost.
